    • The program occurs during the normal academic year; and
    • You will be receiving U.S. college credit towards your degree

    To demonstrate this, you must submit an enrollment verification form from your (U.S.) home university (only if you are selected to receive an award).  Enrollment verifications from institutions abroad will not be accepted.
